Sabril/Potiga/Banzel

Sabril/Potiga/Banzel

Hey everyone :)

I was just wondering if anyone has tried
or is on any of the meds above. ?
My past dr (and the one I have now) won't let me try them,

Xcopri (cenobamate) For Kids ???

My doctor is recommending cenobamate for my son, who is 13 year old. He has focal onset aware seizures and take Oxtellar XR. He has tried Keppra and Banzel and both have aggregated the seizures. Does anyone have experience with cenobamate ? Is this too strong for a kid ? What symptoms do you observe ?

And things fall out of my hand when I feel like I have a full grasp, im always knocking things over or accidentally hitting my head/body on things, constantly stubbing my toes etc. I have been getting so frustrated and upset lately that its leading to aura seizures again. Does anyone else experience this or is it maybe not to do with my… read more
